As a general rule, mobile numbers are not listed in free directories because these numbers are private. Cell phone users consider their mobile phone a private gadget which only they can decide whether to give someone to call. At the same time, there are dozens of accounts when fans were hunting for celebrities’ mobile numbers.
As most of us understand, it is a violation of privacy to call someone’s mobile phone without permission. But is it?
We do drop our numbers on the Internet – e.g. in social profiles, on resumes publicly posted in .pdf files. Plus, there are many cases when we may need to look up someone’s cell number for very legitimate purposes.
But as it has been mentioned throughout this blog, there is no 411 mobile directory that can be used to find this information for free. Only private directories might have it. These directories usually operate as reverse lookups because looking up a person by their mobile number is not such a big deal since he or she already called you anyway.
In order to run a cell phone lookup by name, you will need to use a bit different approach. To make long story short, your best bet is to simply run what is known as “people search“. A people search report may provide a lot of details about someone including their contact information, such as mailing address, e-mail, current and past phone numbers, etc.
